The cause can be determined from the log files. The steps are given below.
To debug this issue, please follow these steps:

1. Check if the information entered in the Config Editor is correct. This can be launched from the default location
2. Check the log file to find further details. The default location for that is C:\Grid-Tools\RemotePublish\logs
     The log files will show the following.
2018-05-03 15:12:27,640 [4] ERROR DMBatch.DMBatch - License has AD disabled but domain 'Domain' is specified in configuration. License and domain configuration should be in sync

The license that has been provided is clearly without AD, but the Domain is mentioned in the Config Editor which is incorrect. Please delete the Domain details from the config Editor and click on the save button.
Now, when you start the service from the status tab, it should start without any errors.
